Tuxedo Design Tutorial

1. Pick 4 different colors. (The example uses purple, lt. blue, black and white). You will need 1 strand of purple, 1 strand of lt. blue, 1 strand of black and 1 strand of white.

2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop.

3. Attach your ½ inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.

4. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 2 & 9 (purple), slots 3 & 8 (lt. blue) & slots 4 & 7(white) & slots 5 & 6 (black). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern. This pattern will start off like the arrow pattern.
